On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Algeria on your National Day on November 1.

The United States is committed to working with Algeria to achieve our common aspiration of a safer world and a brighter future for our children. Our history of cooperation and respect facilitates the growing economic investment and cultural exchange between Algeria and the United States, and we look forward to further expanding our partnership.


I wish the people of Algeria a happy holiday and a peaceful and prosperous year to come.
